Two women were arrested recently after allegedly trying to shoplift steaks at the Bread Basket in Colbert.
Holly Ann Hansford, 43, 7522 Hwy. 72 West, Colbert, and Page Yvonne Nalley, 36, 1092 Charlie Bolton Road, Hull, were each charged with one count of theft by shoplifting. According to the incident report, officer Jeffrey Vaughn responded to the scene where the owner told him that one of his employees had seen the two women place several steaks in their purses and attempt to leave with them. Vaughn asked them to open their purses where he found nine packs of steaks. The women repeatedly asked him to let them pay for the steaks to avoid arrest. When the women arrived at the jail, Nalley reportedly said “both of (the) purses are Holly’s, I just had it to get the steaks.”
In a similar incident, a male customer reportedly stole $100 worth of steaks from Ingles. The manager was able to provide the suspect’s name and warrants may be issued.
In another incident, officers were called to a residence on Adams Clarke Road last week in regard to a man with a shotgun. When officers arrived they met with several people who said they had been evicted and were moving their stuff out. The landlord and his wife had accused them of taking things that did not belong to them, according to witnesses. The landlord had then gone to the residence, fired the gun near the house and then struck one of the tenants in the head, telling them he would “kill them all if they didn’t leave.” Officers found the suspect at his home sitting outside smoking a cigarette. The tenants said they didn’t want to prosecute and feared retaliation if they did. The tenants left the property and said they wouldn’t be back.
